My auntie's death
« on: October 21, 2007, 03:52:27 AM »
Friends....

My auntie, the mother of my good friend Ian, has just reposed...

She is non-orthodox, please pray for her... I dearly wish for her salvation and her joining the choirs of angels and saints in heaven..  :'(

Sorry to hear this.  Lord have mercy!

May the Lord grant her rest and count her among the Saints.
Eternal Memory.

May God grant her a place of quiet repose, where all sickness and sorrow are fled away, and make her memory be eternal.

Grant rest, O Lord.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
